I prefer the word ‘journeyman‘ to ‘journalist‘ because I think that certainly, when you hear a story, you want to hear certain facts. But I also think what makes a story interesting is the points of view expressed therein.
We can score political points. We can try to advance some important initiatives. But at some point, it takes sober-minded, responsible conservative leaders to identify when you’ve pushed as far as you can and to have the courage to go back and face the electorate and explain to them why you voted the way you did.
We have points in common with the FDP, particularly when it comes to tax.

First, I take a lot of time to just explain my vision of what the game should be to the team. Then I make all subsequent decisions based on how I want to feel when I buy the game, and what impressions I want to have of it. I then go about implementing the little points that will lead up to that finished product.
In the past, candidates‘ performances of ‘Christianity‘ have been strong points for voters, but Trump’s ascendancy with evangelicals has eviscerated that expectation. Evangelicals, like other voters, can be very pragmatic about the issues they want addressed by the leadership they support.
There are no points of the compass on the chart of true patriotism.
You can play basketball and have a magic night and score 40 points with your team-mates and win the game.

Everyone does things differently on offense. Everyone’s goal is to score points.
Corrupt fantasy points us, or forms us, in a consciousness that can lead to thinking that evil is good and good is evil. In the worst case, this may have long range effects, prompting the reader intuitively, subconsciously, to do evil while thinking they’re doing good.
To me, the best writing points to something literal or common but is also nuanced: The moment when somebody is telling you they love you while simultaneously disappointing you. Everybody’s experienced that.
By definition, a hearing is an inquiry into many sides of an issue with testimony from various points of views. But mark this: The Republicans did not have a single woman to testify in support of the contraception mandate. That is not a hearing; that is a sham.
I’ve always felt that a person’s intelligence is directly reflected by the number of conflicting points of view he can entertain simultaneously on the same topic.
I am calling attention just to the main points of these tremendously important matters, which can be understood better by pious meditation than explained by human language.
Build up your weaknesses until they become your strong points.
Essentially, you know, one of the great advantages of working in science fiction is it does give you an opportunity to talk about interesting and somewhat controversial themes and social issues and in a way that doesn’t really threaten the audience, because I’m not challenging their particular points of view.
It wasn’t until I got to college and had a lot of my ego beaten out of me… That’s when I started to turn to literature as something deeper than a way to put up points.

I’ve adjusted to being mostly situated in Vancouver now, which I love, and to the fandom that comes along with it. At some points when we’re filming in Vancouver, there are more than 100 fans outside our scene. It’s so cool being able to be a part of something where people are so passionate.
I think two people with strong points of view can appreciate each other even more.
One of the things ‘Star Wars‘ is most deeply about is fathers, sons, and redemption. In its own way, it points to the indispensability of paternal love, and it has a lot to say about the lengths to which people – boys or girls – will go to get it.
The woeful tales of ‘Super Mario Bros.’ and ‘Street Fighter’ have taught studios that merely slapping a name to a movie is not enough to bring in the fans of the franchise. Also, the way games now unfold their stories more parallels that of a movie, with characters and plot points actually meaning as much as a high score.
I do not think that Caitlyn Jenner’s transition was easy. Coming out and transitioning as a public figure – even for someone like her – is an extraordinarily difficult task to undertake. I might not agree with her on a couple of points, but I will refuse to say that her transition was easy.

If you’re a publisher and you forbid deep linking into your site, or have a paid wall or registration requirement, then you’re making it hard to ‘point to’ your content. When no one points to your content, your content is harder to find because search uses links as a proxy for popularity.
At a very young age, I was influenced enormously by Julio Cortazar or Carlos Fuentes. In that literature, there’s always an exploration of different perspectives, points of view.

The boss of all of my songs. I have great respect for that song. Always will.

The best chance we have of being successful is to not slip up and keep working hard to get three points on the board.

If Scott Brown can win in a state that President Obama won by 26 points, I can win in a district that Obey won by just 20 points against an unknown, underfunded challenger in the Democratic landslide of 2008. It means there is not a single Democrat in the country who is safe.
What I would pay much more attention to are the few points where the player can inadvertently make a career decision. Most players end up back-tracking, though some actually enjoy this.
You can’t score if you’re turning it over. It’s like a punt. If you go out and you punt 12 times, you’re not scoring points. That’s not good. So, when you turn the ball over and throw interceptions, you’re giving the other team more opportunities and your team less opportunities.
‘I’ is the word everyone uses to refer to themselves. On the one hand, it points to a specific person, but it’s also this blank space that you can insert yourself into; it’s a chute into empathy.
Political corruption is endemic all over this country, in some places worse than others, right? On crime, you have all the major American cities where the crime rates at different points in their histories, have spiked dramatically.
Every city across the country that has successfully renewed and revitalized itself points to a robust education system as its fundamental key to success.

I have insecurities of course, but I don’t hang out with anyone who points them out to me.
Perspective is worth 80 IQ points.
With writing, you really have to have faith. You have to have some sort of confidence that if you keep at it, you will get where you need to go, because there are so many points where a rational person would quit.
True science is never speculative; it employs hypotheses as suggesting points for inquiry, but it never adopts the hypotheses as though they were demonstrated propositions.
Tim Hardaway Jr., Carmelo Anthony, Kristaps Porzingis and myself – those are four guys that can score 25 points per game.
The problem with themes is that writers don’t realise they are themes until someone points them out.
As a teenager growing up in the suburbs of Washington, I ritually watched the Sunday-morning political talk shows with my family. We parsed and argued and jeered at the screen as national figures delivered careful, poll-tested talking points.
I tend to gravitate toward people who are a bit more eccentric and creative and artistic in some ways. And I like bringing disparate kinds of creative people together to create some great work, even to share points of view on a new direction.
First of all, the Jewish religion has a great deal in common with the Christian religion because, as Rabbi Gillman points out in the show, Christianity is based on Judaism. Christ was Jewish.
Before any American points a finger at President Putin and calls him nasty names, they should recognize that a lot of Americans agree with Putin on his stance against homosexual and transgender people.
In Chinese culture, it wouldn’t occur to kids to question or talk back to their parents. In American culture, kids in books, TV shows and movies constantly score points with their snappy back talk. Typically, it’s the parents who need to be taught a life lesson – by their children.
I have more respect for somebody who points at his ideal – in this case, the ideal of the pirate – and then becomes something that’s more radical, more exciting, more subversive than a pirate could ever be.

I have the comedic chops and intelligence to raise points and discuss both sides of whatever is on our mind as a society.

Despite a good season and 22 points, I’ll not drive any more for Toro Rosso in 2015.
From where started, I think it is too far down to try and win a championship at the end of the season, although we had a very good first race at Mondello and scored some good points.
‘Babel‘ is about the point of view of others. It literally includes points of views as experienced from the other side. It is not about a hero. It is not about only one country. It is a prism that allows us to see the same reality from different angles.
I think a good story can do as much as a novel; not the exact same thing, of course, but just as much artistically. They’re different beasts, but to tackle an expansive country like the United States, you’re either going to write a big novel, or go in to various points on the map and write stories or poems.
As players at Bayern, we’re not interested in any boredom – we’re interested in picking up three points each game.

When you’re governor, you’ve got to step up to the plate; you’ve got to make a proposal for a balanced budget. That’s the requirement. And then you’ve got to sit down and negotiate if the folks that you need to work with disagree with you on points.
When I was little, I didn’t smile much. Don’t get me wrong. I was a happy kid, but I couldn’t stand the space, dead center, in between my teeth. Yeah, I could whistle through it, but so what? That didn’t win me many points on the playground in Medfield, Massachusetts.
But just maybe sometimes being even more patient. Even though I thought I did that much better this year, and sometimes, you know, make my opponents play that one extra ball, and just knowing how to play the big points better.

I was always used to being centre stage – something that had its good and bad points.
In the pros, tennis is all about individuals. In college, it’s getting individuals to make points for the team.
With my earlier books, I got quite bored being with one protagonist all the way through. With the Alex Morrow books, I wanted to do something a bit more holistic, so there were lots of different points of view, and I wanted to look at aspects of crime that you don’t tend to look at.
The Black Lives Matter National Network and the movement at large are sophisticated. We’re not easily won over by talking points and campaign trail pledges. We want to see meaningful collaboration and a genuine transformation of American democracy.
I won four world titles, got beat twice – but avenged one of those losses – and the other loss was on points to someone who was unbeaten in Andre Ward. I had a comfortable, successful career and it wasn’t through natural ability but through dedication and hard work.
Our points of reference in America aren’t steeped in literature; they’re steeped in that five minutes between commercials.

In order to know the true situation of a Planet at any particular time, the small set of balls are to be put each on its respective axis; then the winch to be turned round until each index points to the given time.
It’s one of my stronger points claiming high balls. I’m tall, so that helps me. If you’re a smaller goalkeeper, crosses in England are even harder.
Sometimes you meet characters at certain points in your life and have a connection with them.
I make it a habit of never trying to judge what an audience might think, only because all points of view are too close, because we’re doing it every day, I think that the actor’s point of view is sometimes too close to what the material actually is.
There are so many low points with stand-up. You are perpetually humiliated, so it doesn’t really matter anymore. I don’t have any dignity left to lose. An audience can’t hurt you anymore when you’ve been completely dismantled.
One of the main points everywhere in my life is fairness. Coming from South Africa and being treated unfairly all your life because of your skin colour, that’s been a huge point.
If you are ever on stage, and it feels as though the audience is not laughing at the right points or are not quite as engaged as you’d hope, you have to remember there is always somebody who might be falling in love with this world and having an epiphany. I was that person.
To read the report of a discussion in which arguments for and against are presented, in which a subject has been covered from different points of view, with new ideas advanced – this is far more instructive than to read a brief account of the resolution passed on the matter.
There’s something to be said for writing in the morning. At other points in the day, you’re a bit more defensive.
I know what I want to achieve in each book and the major points, but I don’t plan right down to the chapters. I think that the characters write themselves in some degree.
What appeals to me? There are things, points of view, uses of the language, habits of dress, ways of thought and believing that came to me from my grandparents and came to them from theirs. Things that are of good use in any situation, no matter what the future may hold.
Having been through some adversity, starting from different points and having to work through the depth chart on many occasions, it’s definitely helped my story.
One day I’d have 20 points, the next day two points. I was dribbling the ball off my leg. I couldn’t understand why. The media started asking me, ‘Is this because you are a new dad?’ I didn’t want to blame my son. There are plenty of people in much worse situations, and they make it work. I have to do that, too.
It is the growth of advertising in this country which, more than any single element, has brought the American magazine to its present enviable position in points of literary, illustrative and mechanical excellence.
I’m a populist. I’m the people’s designer… It’s important that there are price points that allow people in who maybe don’t have the ability to have higher-ticket items – but they can still have something very emblematic of the collection.
People can voice their different points of view. We are also a country where there will be criticism.
One shouldn’t ever be conscious of the author as lecturer. When social or moral points are too heavily stressed, I always get uncomfortable.
Women’s particular experiences continue to shape not just their points of view but their actions, in the United States and around the world.
Although when I start a novel I know how it will begin and end, I like to let the people within the story take me on a journey between those points without having a fixed plan.
There’s been an incredible censorship in America and throughout the world, but particularly in America where students aren’t even allowed to critically think about evolution, the issue of origins; they are not allowed to hear other points of view; they are taught incorrectly about science and taught that evolution is fact.
If we go and see hundreds of different market resources, you are seeing hundreds of different points of view, and once in a while, my experience is, you will come across one or two that are just outstanding, and you never would have thought of them.
There were points I wanted to stop acting. We got so busy and didn’t get to see our friends a lot, and I was like, ‘Wow, I’m kind of over this.’ But then we started really having fun on ‘The Suite Life.’
I came to New York and started doing stand-up and improv, and started auditioning for commercials and voiceovers and stuff. My first job was on a pilot of that prank show called ‘Boiling Points’ on MTV.
That’s the purpose of creative stuff: when you really love what you do, you have to know at some point, or points, you’re not going to be good at it. That’s just the process of learning. I can edit it and try to be as perfect as I can, but I’m still going to have my vulnerable spots and my weaknesses.
When I storyboard, they’re just fragments of thoughts. I write in three acts like a movie, so I have my plot points up on the preliminary storyboard.

At some points, I wanted to quit. There were surgeries after surgeries, and I didn’t really believe in myself. I didn’t feel good about my body.

If we sit here and think about what other teams are doing and the points game and all that, we’re going to go crazy, and it’s not going to help our game.
There’s a rumour going ’round that if you amass a certain number of penalty points on your driving licence, the authorities will make you take your test again! Now, if ever there was an incentive to drive carefully, they could not have threatened a more terrifying ordeal.
We can’t be anti-everything – we need an energy plan that adds up. But there’s a lack of numeracy in the public discussion of energy. Where people do use numbers, they select them to sound big and score points in arguments, rather than to aid thoughtful discussion.
A traditional presidential campaign has a media bus with the candidate’s name on it and an itinerary days in advance. Trump has a plane with his name on it (that we aren’t invited on) and an itinerary that often mutates daily, along with his talking points.
I think there’s always merit in getting out of our ideological silos and being exposed to points of view with which we don’t always agree.
Looking at the world from other species‘ points of view is a cure for the disease of human self-importance. You suddenly realize that consciousness – which we value and we consider the crowning achievement of nature, human consciousness – is really just another set of tools for getting along in the world.
At different points in my life, I had grappled with the idea of going into the priesthood – in high school or law school. Where it ends, I’m not quite sure. Perhaps it ends with death, grappling with one’s spirituality.
The pleasantly crude ‘Hall Pass’ reminds us of what’s been missing from movies: Those squirm-inducing moments in comedy that produce enough discomfort that, at points, what we’re watching is half a heartbeat away from a horror film.
The cool thing about designers is they have very specific points of view, and because my inspiration is always changing, it’s easy to go, ‘This feels right.’ But just because I wear fancy dresses on weekends doesn’t mean in my heart of hearts I’m not a jeans and T-shirt person.
Friendship can only exist between persons with similar interests and points of view. Man and woman by the conventions of society are born with different interests and different points of view.

I really think that music itself, being one of the greatest possible vehicles for mass communication, should be probed to its extremes, to see how effective it can actually become, which is one of the reasons why I became also interested in presenting political points of view.
Diverse groups do best at complex problems and innovation when the facts aren’t clear: each individual‘s perspective allows him or her to tackle challenges differently and, when stuck, rely on others’ differing points of views to progress.
Nerve cells communicate with one another at specialized points called synapses. And these synapses are plastic – they can be modified by learning.
I don’t take a stance to score political points. That’s not what I’m about. That’s not why the people hired me. If I do take a stand on something, it’s because I’ve thoroughly researched it.
It is amazing to hear grown-up people rationalize homophobia and discrimination. The lengths they go to trying to prove their points take reason to its breaking point.

The train’s always full of football fans going up to see matches. Oh, they make sure I hear their points of view all right. They all want to have their say about their team, and make their opinions known.
We’ve done a lot of research on the characteristics of our teachers who are the most successful. The most predictive trait is still past demonstrated achievement, and all selection research basically points to that.
All I can ever hope to be to my son is someone who’s supportive, someone who listens and understands and points out possible other ways of thinking, ways of feeling, ways of approaching things, suggests rather than demands.
Our national prosperity is built on our open borders. However, the reality is that if a points system is introduced in the UK it would be unavoidable for us in the Netherlands to implement similar proposals – and inevitable that many other EU countries would follow suit.
I’ve seen a therapist at different points in my life for different reasons.
I think that I am lucky and blessed to have the job that I have, and I am trying to create longevity. If that means that I transition into different things at different points in my life, then that’s fine. I also believe that if doors don’t open, make new doors, so I’ve also started producing quite a bit of things.
I’ve learned that I can be calm during important points.
People negotiate their way around how a human mind works and find blind points. That’s how people steal effectively.
All knowledge of cultural reality, as may be seen, is always knowledge from particular points of view.
My brother‘s my best friend, without a doubt. Me and my big sister get along so well. She moved to East London, though, so points off, but she’s wicked. And then my little sister is a little genius. She’s super talented and such a great person, always been far more mature and cool than me.
To even get to the Olympics, I have to qualify for the 2013 World Championships and the standard is high. I know I am always going to be a few points behind the top guys.
Tolerance, openness to argument, openness to self-doubt, willingness to see other people’s points of view – these are very liberal and enlightened values that people are right to hold, but we can’t allow them to delude us to the point where we can’t recognise people who are needlessly perpetrating human misery.
Snowden and NSA leaders should be brought together face-to-face for questioning in public by a congressional investigatory committee, with both parties allowed to make their points and to counter the assertions of the other. If Snowden is lying, it will come out. If the NSA is lying, it will come out.
Everybody points their finger at me and says that I’m the crazy guy and this thug.
Faulkner‘s ‘As I Lay Dying’ had an immense effect on me, and most of my novels bear the burn marks of this experience, those short chapters with their conflicting points of view, truth expressed by multiple perspectives. The other attractive thing about ‘As I Lay Dying’ was the way it gave rich voices to the poor.
For us, it’s about winning. How do you do that? You score more points than the other team.
I never consciously choose what I’m going to work on next; I don’t have an agenda beyond that attraction. Fortunately, my wonderful agent, Christopher Schelling, knows how I think and points me toward things I might like, which is how I started writing Y.A.
There are two methods for the literary study of any book – the first being the study of its thought and emotion; the second only that of its workmanship. A student of literature should study some of the Bible from both points of view.
I’m more than comfortable just sitting back and scoring 21, 22 points or whatever and getting 10, 11 assists whatever the case might be. More than comfortable with that. It’s just a matter of the pieces that you have around you and what you can do to elevate everybody else.
One day, I’d like to get a quadruple double, points, assists, rebounds and blocks.
Liberals need to take the advice they routinely give to conservatives: that there are consequences to their divisive rhetoric, and that in their attempts to score political points, they are also inciting violence.

I can score 20 points if I want to, but that’s not my desire.
At my age, I’m not trying to score cool points. I’m just excited when I can speak to younger members of our audience in the WWE. I just get to be a superhero to kids, but I’m not trying to be on the cutting edge of style or anything like that. Once you reach that point of deprivation, you don’t mind it.
Every goal is a nice goal, great feeling, but the most important thing is we grab the three points and give the fans a nice afternoon.
Just try to focus one game at a time, not worry about points or anything like that. Worry about playing the right way and see what comes of it.
I will keep America moving forward, always forward, for a better America, for an endless enduring dream and a thousand Points of Light. This is my mission, and I will complete it.

My life is one long curve, full of turning points.
All my career, I’ve said this: Critics and producers think audiences want actors that only present the silhouette and hit the points in the silhouette. What I do is too dangerous.
What makes a lot of suspenseful films work is very, very particular points of view and very subjective use of the camera.
English people are famous for never speaking out but only saying what they really feel about you behind your back. Americans believe the shortest distance between two points is a straight line. I like exploring those, er, differences in national snippiness.
For me, some of the key points of drag are knowing who you are, how you want to go about making people happy with your art, and why you’re doing what you’re doing.
Writing a really general parser is a major but different undertaking, by far the hardest points being sensitivity to context and resolution of ambiguity.

To score points, you need a lot of consistent effort over the course of the game. If you’re throwing it or running it in, it’s not a big difference in terms of the score at all, obviously. But turnovers limit your scoring. That’s the problem with turnovers.
Both parties are so entrenched in their ideologies and a desire to score political points and hold on to power that we never seem to agree on a problem, much less find solutions.

I feel flattered that people like the way I look, but it doesn’t help you win points.
Being surrounded by diverse points of view pushes us beyond our comfort zones. And when people and teams bring multiple perspectives and experiences to the table, the discussions are deeper, the decision-making process is better, and the solutions are stronger.

I never give anyone advice: it can backfire horribly. In the 1950s, Eric Morecambe told Ken Dodd to get his teeth fixed. But those teeth turned out to be one of Dodd’s big selling points.
When I’m out hustling up new industries, I can offer Louisiana‘s many selling points. We have unmatched natural resources, a unique culture and fantastic workers.

I’m going to win or lose a match playing on my terms, playing my game, which is big and aggressive and trying to dictate points. Not shying away from that.

The day is not far distant when three Stars and Stripes at three equidistant points will mark our territory: one at the North Pole, another at the Panama Canal, and the third at the South Pole. The whole hemisphere will be ours in fact as, by virtue of our superiority of race, it already is ours morally.
I think there’s so many points of view that you want to make sure your stories are being told from men and women… you get all of the different backgrounds. You don’t want every story being told from the same point of view. So just for better storytelling, I’m like, ‘Yes, please, bring some more ladies on.’
My friend created an iPhone app that locates Vienna Beef products across the country. Personally, I came hardwired with an internal GPS that instinctively points me toward coffee shops, cupcake stores and the perfect Chicago-style dog, so I find this technology redundant.

I’ve been privileged to be able to be a part of some of my girlfriends‘ lives at their breaking points.

The main points were: one, the amount of Israel’s nuclear weapons, how many Israel had, that no one could predict or know, including the CIA. They were thinking about a number like 10 or 15. But I came out with a number between 150 to 200.
You may score 50 points and grab 40 rebounds and have 30 assists, but if I don’t make the free throws at the end of the game, and we lose, does that make you not a champion?

As wrestlers, we’re not trying to hurt or damage physically our opponent. All we’re trying to do is score points and get our hands raised, so I think that’s where we differ from the UFC, but I think that also the way in which we could address each other could be cool from a competitive spirit.
I say I write extrapolations. I look at data points and ask what the world could look like.
While in the early days of networks, growth was limited by slowness and cost at numerous points – expensive telephone connections, computers that crashed, browsers that didn’t work – the rise of the smartphone has essentially changed all that.
I’ve lived this very dramatic life, with high points and terrible low points. Nothing has been ordinary, and I want to have the experience of the last breath. I want a little drama to it.
I have personal beliefs and they are sometimes reflected in the movies I make, but I also reflect other points of view.
I don’t really care how many yards I throw for; as long as we score more points than the guys we’re playing.
A person who can go out and get 40 is going to get a lot more respect than somebody who goes out and holds somebody to two points. It’s just the nature of the game. It doesn’t bother me.
Don’t listen to the prevailing majority points of view. If you have new ideas, push them.

Sound quality was supposed to be one of the big selling points for CDs but, as we know, it wasn’t very good at all. It was just another con, a get-rich-quick scheme, a monumental hoax perpetrated on the music consuming public.

I try to speak my points of view about black America, and how I feel about black men and the role that black men should play in their lives with their children and in their lives with their women.

One of the points about distractions is that everything that they do is destabilizing.
Don’t try to kid yourself that your game is about pace if it isn’t. If you’re a big guy like me you need to look at how similarly built players use that physical presence to influence a game. Accept that your build may have some limitations – but plenty of plus points too.
The one-handed backhand helps you to be more aggressive in the points.
Think tanks do have points of view, and they are absolutely entitled to defend them.
There’s a dangerous bottom-lining, and super-summarizing that happens in a lot of our press and our media, and sort of our politicians’ talking points, that’s dangerously simple. I don’t know a better way to say it. And there’s usually a lot more complicated facts going on than what is quoted and quotable.
The line that describes the beautiful is elliptical. It has simplicity and constant change. It cannot be described by a compass, and it changes direction at every one of its points.
There’s no reason why fiscal responsibility is a Democrat or a Republican point of view. It ought to be all of our points of view.

One of the most beautiful things about ‘Game of Thrones’ is it’s told from so many different points of view, and these characters can convince you that what they’re doing is right. But they’re only showing you a bit of the picture, and when you see it from another character’s point of view you may switch allegiances.
I really do not think about ‘Oh, right now I have to defend those points and this title.’ I just really want to enjoy playing on the court, in front of the fans.
My job is to protect the football and score points and lead this offense on drives to score points.
I would like beautiful gymnastics to be recognized as the best. I want the judges to appreciate things that are not necessarily winning points.

You always take a little bit back with you at the end of the day. I always put a little bit of myself into the characters, too. You find parallels, points of connection, things like that. But I’m not an actor who gets so incredibly haunted by my characters that I can’t come back.
If I were a high school coach, I would put my best players on offense. The best athletes on my team, I would give them the ball and score points. I wouldn’t play them on defense. I would play them where they can get the ball and score points.

There were a lot of points where I would start to come out, face stern resistance and mockery from people I thought were my friends, and then reverse course. I was scared. I don’t think I ever said, ‘I’m gay,’ or, ‘I’m trans.’ It was more like, ‘Is it normal for guys to crossdress a lot?’
I teach a lecture course on American poetry to as many as 150 students. For a lot of them, it’s their only elective, so this is their one shot. They’ll take the Russian Novel or American Poetry, so I want to give them the high points, the inescapable poets.
I’m probably the worst fantasy league player ever. I don’t really score that often, and I get booked quite a lot as well – when you get booked, you lose points.
Success was one of my weakest points. I was so ill-prepared for it. I never appreciated within myself the gift of success. I never accepted it. People gave me so much momentum and love, and people really got my music, but I didn’t accept it. That’s probably one of my biggest regrets.
John McCain felt very strongly about virtually every issue that he tackled, but it was never based in partisanship. He didn’t try to score partisan points as he worked on issues. He would work with anyone who wanted to accomplish the goal that he shared.

There are huge pain points experienced by parents. It’s hard to find good child care options in one place. It’s hard figure out things to do with your kids on the weekends or after school. It’s hard to find iPad apps for your kids that you are confident are helping them learn vs. just being entertained.
As a Third World citizen, I always feel that I need to express my point of view. Sometimes the points of view of Third World countries are never expressed. We don’t have that possibility, sometimes, to spread what we feel and how we see things.
I’ve had the privilege of meeting and/or interviewing most of the top metal and hard rock artists at various points in my career and sharing their stories and music with millions of fans on air through TV and radio.

What’s different now is that while political leaders used to give talking points to talk radio, now talk-radio hosts are giving talking points to political leaders.

It is a narrow mind which cannot look at a subject from various points of view.

I always put myself in the audience’s place and see if, as a viewer, I would want to see the film. If yes, then I want to know who’s directing it, what my character is, and if it’s impactful. If all these points fall in place, I’ll do the film. If not, then I won’t think twice before saying no.
The first award that I recall having received was in the form of a scholarship when I was studying in the 5th standard. I was granted this scholarship for achieving academic excellence, and it continues to be one of the high points in my life.

A lot of guys are offensive minded, which is good at some points and times but bad at others – at lots of others. I wish I could say I want everybody to play defense as hard as I do. It’s not a reality.
I care about Bond and what happens to him. You cannot be connected with a character for this long and not have an interest. All the Bond films had their good points.
One of the main points about travelling is to develop in us a feeling of solidarity, of that oneness without which no better world is possible.
When I was a young player, I would look at players and think, he does this well, and try and pick up good points from them, or he conducts himself well, I’ll pick up on that.
When you build your network, keep yourself open to new ideas, concepts, and theories. Some of them may even contradict and challenge long-held points of view. This isn’t beneficial only to someone in my profession, but to every line of work.

I believe that at certain points in people’s lives they need assistance in order to move on to the next point in their life.
You got to want to evolve. It’s something you can practice on but it just came to me. I wasn’t really sitting there like, ‘What can I do to get better?’ It just came to me, talking to my people and my crew. They just tell me what my strongest and weakest points are at.
One of the things I learned in the military is sometimes you don’t know what mistakes you make for a long time. But as you go through a campaign, there’s lots of decision points you make, and you don’t know whether those are gonna be the right decision points or not.
Don’t be intimidated by people who seem to be experts. Hear their points of view and get their judgements. But at the end of day, you’ve got to make a judgement because it’s not their life that’s going to be affected so much as your future.
I’m a working journalist. I’m interested in all points of view, and I draw conclusions based on facts, not just on opinions.
Any time you can get the ball back to the offense and they put points on the board, you can win games.
Foreign policy exactly suits Obama’s strong points as a leader, which turn out not to be giving the masses a clear sense of direction and hope, but instead exercising good judgment on a case-by-case basis while thinking many steps ahead of the present moment.
Boredom is a very self-conscious emotion by definition. Interest is not. So you can actually be completely absorbed in something and, at certain points in your development, not even realize that you’re into it.
I’d never stop traveling, and I love bringing my family along with me. My children have points of reference everywhere, friends from Milan to Los Angeles. I think it’s really fun for them.
Let’s face it: dancing isn’t one of my strong points.
The tail of the comet always points straight away from the sun, in antisolar direction. Sometimes the tail trails behind, but sometimes it’s perpendicular, and sometimes it’s ahead of the comet like a headlight on a railroad locomotive.
I don’t believe in a golden mean; I don’t believe you find policy wisdom between two polar points. I don’t dismiss that possibility, but I look at the platform that’s so ideologically based, that’s so dismissive of facts, of evidence, of science, and it’s frankly hard to take seriously.
Astaire never thought of what he was doing as balletic, but Kelly was always trying to dance with women on points. And his choreography is so showy and flashy. He always looks self-satisfied to me.
I remember once Manchester United were ahead of Manchester City by eight points and ended up losing it, so everything is possible in this life.
I believe I am strong mentally. My breaking points might be bigger than most players. I think it’s because of the way I grew up with my two older brothers. They pushed my limits quite often – once every day, I think! I think that played a big role in my breaking point being bigger than most players. Not all players.
I have pride, and my pride won’t allow me to accept losing by 30 points four games in a row.
If you believe – which I do – that acting is a bit like advocacy for your character, then of course I want to find the positive points.
Art is only a means to life, to the life more abundant. It is not in itself the life more abundant. It merely points the way, something which is overlooked not only by the public, but very often by the artist himself. In becoming an end it defeats itself.
I kept my speeches short as captain. I focused on the key points of the opposition of the day. As coach, I was never afraid to give long speeches to the players throughout our preparations. It was important they had all the information possible.
I never saw my career as a journey with a beginning, middle, and end, with high points and low points. It is just a whole, big mass of experience, and I take each experience as it comes. I don’t strategise.
Science has not solved problems, only shifted the points of problems.
Maybe politically it wasn’t wise but when people have different view points I think the public has a right to hear it and the public has a right to make decisions based on those view points.
There’s been a lot of talk of me being a one-man show but that’s simply not the case. We win games when I score 40 points and we’ve won when I score 10.
As a youngster, my mother and father always drilled into my head having something to fall back on. My father was kind of funny. I’d score 40 points. I’d come home and say, ‘Look dad, I scored 40.’ He’d never have a smile on his face. He’d be like, ‘I saw that move you did. What if you’d hurt your knee?’
Every game means something, the supporters are fantastic, and since I’ve come to Palace, I’ve learnt to fight as a team and for the three points.
I don’t care if it’s a Cole Porter song, or George Gershwin, or Lennon/McCartney, or Elton John, or you know, whoever, Bob Dylan. Great songs are great songs, and they stand the test of time, and they can be interpreted and recorded with many points of view, but yet still retain the essence of what makes them good songs.
It’s not about guys getting minutes or scoring 20 points or getting playing time. To me, it’s about if you’ve got to make one 3-pointer to win that championship, we need you to make that one 3-pointer. Whatever it takes.
Ultimately, the NRA has maybe five million members. We are a nation of 320 million-plus, and it’s time we call out those who stand on the wrong side of history and spout the same old NRA talking points.
It is in Virginia and Georgia that the war now rages and where it will continue; for at these points – Richmond and Atlanta – the enemy‘s main strength is concentrated.
It’s football. The game hasn’t changed. There’s not tons of new concepts every year that go in. Offense is offense; it’s our job to move the ball, to score points, and keep our defense off the field.
The World Championship gold was a surprise and took a lot of pressure off in terms of qualifying for Rio, but I still need more points, and winning in Manchester would be massive for me.

I grabbed 19 rebounds in my first professional game, and somehow found a way to score 20 points. I felt real good about it. I felt that this was the beginning of something good.
At its best, what art does is, it points to who we as human beings and what we as human beings value. And if Black Lives Matter, they deserve to be in paintings.
The principal of unity and indivisibility of the republic are the essential reference points.
The distributor used to get 10, 12, 14 percent in most cases, but the App Store or Steam – they’re taking 30 points. So clearly, they’re viewing what they bring to the table in the digital environment to be more valuable than distribution.
I’d never really been in a series, where you see a man at different points and perspectives in his life. Usually it’s a film, where I’m playing a character who just comes in and offers something up.

I think that people with differing points of view find common ground in ‘Modern Family’ is very flattering, and I’m appreciative of that.
Having an interview in English is difficult for me, but acting in English is much harder. Because when I’m acting in English, if someone points out bad pronunciation or accent, I cannot focus on my emotions anymore, so it was very hard.
Sometimes I just put some first serve in, which, on break points, it’s pretty important.
Even people that are evil believe what they’re doing is good. I don’t agree with those people, but it’s about understanding that there are those kinds of points of view.
It is necessary to bear in mind that Scripture only teaches the chief points of those true principles which lead to the true perfection of man, and only demands in general terms faith in them.
If you are well known at something else, you get points for doing stuff which lots of other people do, and much more, and they don’t get any points at all. You get over-praised, over-credited.

Once you are on court, it doesn’t matter the way you look. It doesn’t help you win points.
There are points in your life, especially if you have creative ambitions, where selfishness is necessary.

Great novels have great characterization no matter what. But multiple points of view let me examine characters from entirely different perspectives, allowing me to learn more about everyone in the process.

Part of what confuses people in times of upheaval is that you’re getting so many different points of view and directions and so and so, how to do this and do that. And a lot of it is written in a language that honestly most people cannot understand.
I believe that economists put decimal points in their forecasts to show they have a sense of humor.
A poem is true if it hangs together. Information points to something else. A poem points to nothing but itself.
The continental troops have as much courage and real discipline as those that are opposed to them. They are more inured to privation, more patient than Europeans, who, on these two points, cannot be compared to them.
As a comedian, you want people to like you. That’s part of why you’re there in the first place: You have this unquenchable need to be liked, and then when you divert from that and take a chance at doing something that has moments of fierce unlikeability, you can hit some real low points.
The tubular steel chair is surely rational from technical and constructive points of view. It is light, suitable for mass production, and so on. But steel and chromium surfaces are not satisfactory from the human point of view.
When you make the judgement as a network that there are only three candidates, you are censoring points of view.
I think any time an offense struggles with developing a rhythm, struggles with scoring points, I think the first thing you have to examine is the quarterback.
People want someone focused on getting the job done, not political talking points but rather solving problems.
In ‘Saami,’ I take a poor dhobi’s son for admission to a private school. The principal refuses for various reasons and finally he points to the boy‘s bare body. Immediately, I tear the furnishings off the office chair to convert them into clothes for the boy.
